Lakes of Russia - Stars Decorate The Fire

As lovely as the both the name of the artist and album would suggest Lakes of Russia are a rather special new discovery for me. Gentle and lush, slowly played guitars echo against the ivories of delicately handled pianos. Simply described on their website as songs for the lonely and sleep deprived each song burns slowly and never takes the obvious climax of a wall of sound. Simply lovely.


Múm - "Rhubarbidoo"
